"The Face" as written by Jon Hall, Wilfe Woods and James Campbell....
Forget all that I said and just drive
We'll be on the coastline by five
The sky is turning black to blue
I'm never gonna make it without you

Have my coat if you're cold, I feel fine
Just keep your hands off my communion wine
You cling to the things you deserve
You can't love me, you don't have the nerve

Forget everything up until now
See my face for the first time somehow
My hopes fade with the heat of the day
So I gotta pull over to pray

The sky's so high that I can't see
The face that God put there for me
And I'm so high that I can't see
The face that God put there for me
The face that God put there for me

Six times in the back of a Benz
Six strangers becoming my best friends
You were there, I remember your face
I recall that you seemed out of place

You kept putting your head through the skylight
You kept saying 'No' to the phone lines
You kept you making me look at myself
You kept making me see that I have no reflection

The sky's so high that I can't see
The face that God put there for me
And I'm so high that I can't see
The face that God put there for me

The worst part of losing a friend
Is knowing that it's not the end
There's always one more time you meet
In a crowded shop or a darkened street

You quickly catch each other's eye
You drop your head and walk on by
And you know in that moment or two
You might have lost someone who really loves you
You might have lost someone who really loves you
Have you ever lost someone who really, really loves you?

Have you ever lost someone
Who really loves you?
